5.0 out of 5 stars Solid!, October 23, 2006
This review is from: Senile Animal (Audio CD)
"A Senile Animal" the new release from one of the most original and uncompromising band on the music scene, the Melvins, is a solid album of straight forward heavy, dare I say it, "rock" music. This is the Melvins of old, thick fat bass, heavy drumming and guitars galore, sludgy stuff just the way some "fans" like the Melvins to sound, nary an experimental drones or lengthy noise feedback on this album. Looking back at some of their recordings, the mix bag of experimental sounds they threw in on some of their albums and their collaboration with the sound artist Lustmord, I can understand how the Melvins is not a one dimensional band, while some who claim to be fans just want the Melvins to keep doing "Houdini part II, III or IV" or "Lysol part II, III and IV", the band would put out albums like "Prick" or "Honky" just to shake off some of those cling-on mimbo jocks and the average boneheaded suburban teenage malcontent who happens to had a whiff of "Gluey Porch Treatment" and think that that's all there is to the Melvins, this band simply cannot record an album that sounds the same one after the other, the Melvins is definitely not your average band. The Melvins in my book maintains a sense of integrity in their approach to making music, they strive not to be commercial nor to be popular, they are musicians who believe strongly in their music and will keep on making music the way they want to regardless what some so-called "fans" think, "ooh, I don't like this album 'coz it doesn't sound like their last one..." If you're one of those people, please go start your own band, better yet, why not join the "My Chemical Romance" fan club?
